Pam Strobel Creates

Paper Pumpkin

Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription service by Stampin’ Up. Get a box delivered to you every month full of pre-cut and ready to use products for card making. You can cancel/suspend your subscription anytime.

What do you get?

Your monthly kit includes a unique stamp set, ink, and embellishments. You can use these materials to make a predesigned project or make something original instead. Occassionally, you will get extras in your kit.

When do you get it?

Your monthly Paper Pumpkin box should arrive around the 20th of the month. If you subscribe by the 10th of the current month then you will receive your first box by the end of that month.

Who is it for?

Paper Pumpkin is perfect for the stampers who want to skip right to the funnest part of stamping: putting together clean and beautiful finished cards. It is the perfect solution for expressing your creative side.

Two Great Subscription Options

Pay As You Go Subscription

The pay as you go subscription is the ideal choice for most people. You are billed monthly for your subscription, which costs $23.50 per month plus tax. Shipping is included in the price! You subscribe directly through the Paper Pumpkin website.

Prepaid Subscription

This option is best if you want to pay ahead or give Paper Pumpkin kits as gifts. You can choose between one, three, six, and twelve month prepaid options. The prepaid kits must be purchased through the Stampin' Up! website.


What comes in the Paper Pumpkin kit?

Every Paper Pumpkin kit includes an exclusive high quality photopolymer stamp set, ink spot, embellishments and instructions to create a predesigned project. Everything is precut and ready to go.

What are the costs associated with my kit?

The per kit cost of Paper Pumpkin is dependent on which subscription plan you choose. You can choose between a pay as you go (month-to-month) subscription or a prepaid subscription. You can view the prepaid subscription options in the official Stampin' Up! store or subscribe to the month-to-month on the Paper Pumpkin website.

Why should I choose Paper Pumpkin versus another kit by Stampin' Up! ?

The Paper Pumpkin Kit is a great introduction to using multiple Stampin’ Up! products and has everything you need. Other kits typically do not contain ink with them like the Paper Pumpkin kit does. The stamp images included in the monthly kits are exclusive to the Paper Pumpkin kits and not offered in the annual or mini Stampin' Up! catalogs.

I want to try it out for a limited time or give Paper Pumpking as a gift. What is the best option?

For those looking to test Paper Pumpkin, or give a subscription as a gift, and only pay once, the prepaid option is great. Below you can see all the prepaid options compared. There is a cost savings per kit if you go with the 6-month or 12-month option. If you just want to try it once then you can click here to add a 1-month prepaid subscription to your shopping cart.

How are prepaid subscriptions redeemed?

When you prepay for a subscription in my online store you will receive an e-mail with a redemption code and instructions on how to redeem. The e-mail will guide you to the Paper Pumpkin website, where you will enter the code and it will recognize the number of months paid for. Be sure to enter shipping information into the account.

Can I start or stop at any time?

When starting your subscription, you must start by the 10th of the month in order to receive that month’s kit in the mail. Orders placed after that will ship the following month’s kit. You may also skip a month if you will be out of town and don’t want it sitting in your mail box.

How will I know how to assemble the contents of my Paper Pumpkin kit?

Each Paper Pumpkin Kit comes with an instruction page and photos to assemble that month’s projects. Stampin’ Up! also releases a monthly unboxing video to share the contents of each surprise found in your mailbox. In addition to this source there is a dedicated YouTube channel.

How do I pay for my kit?

You will need to add a payment card with your initial subscription sign-up. Your card will not be charged until your monthly kit is shipped. Your subscription will be on auto pay. You will get an e-mail notifying you that your card has been charged. Or, if you purchase prepaid kits, you are charged at the time of purchase.

When will my Paper Pumpkin kit arrive?

Monthly kits typically ship the 2nd week of the month and will arrive in your mailbox around the 20th of the month.

How much time do I need to finish each project?

Typically, each kit is designed to make the projects in a one-hour time frame. Alternate projects found via community sources may take shorter or longer.

Is there anything else I need to know?

Yes! Here are a few tips! First of all, Paper Pumpkin kits do not include scissors or liquid glue which you may need while assembling your kit. You can add scissors and glue from Stampin' Up! to your cart by clicking HERE. Secondly, the ink pads you get with your kit will eventually go dry from being used in your projects. Rather then buying new ink pads, I suggest purchasing ink refills. You can browse ink refills in the Stampin' Up! store.

How can I connect with other Paper Pumpkin subscribers?

There are plenty of community sources with inspiration and alternate ideas for the contents of your monthly Paper Pumpkin box. Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube are just a few available for us all to stay connected.

I hope I have been able to answer all the questions you might have had. Additional questions you have could be answered in my article Is Paper Pumpkin Worth It?, where I discuss the pros and cons of Paper Pumpkin, or on the Paper Pumpkin website.
